To attract more visitors to Mauritius, the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority has come up with the Mauritius Shopping Fiesta which is an event that allows people to obtain a variety of items at discount prices in various shops and shopping malls. That's only the tip of the iceberg though as buyers will also be entered into a variety of raffles where prices include a brand new car among others.
This is a really great initiative, even more so because the sales are not only open to tourists. Mauritius citizens can also enjoy all these deals and special offers as long as the shop is participating in the Mauritius Shopping Fiesta 2012 (which is from the 29th of June to 05th August).
Obviously, these sales are only applicable to certain products and the promotions vary from shop to shop. For more details about these details and the event in general, you can visit the official shopping fiesta website.
